Hay Guys, i think i already know the awnser to this but ill ask anyway.

If i lower my IS200 by 30mm will i need to have my geom done again.

Im thinking yes, but i have only just had it done by lexus (before i read on here about WIM)

Cheers

30mm is safe for recovery by the cars natural adjusters. Distortion of the geometry is without question so please heed the advice displayed here in LOC.... This club can recommend many centres to recover the positions but there are some Dynamic issues to conclude prior to the recovery..... if you want i will write the positions for you!.... In LOC this is without cost but i will need additional information to conclude final positions.

so even tho i have had it done by Lexus you recon i should have it done again. Fair enough. you guys are the experts.

Believe it or not the geometry defined by Lexus is wrong, so if Lexus set it up it will be wrong. Not saying that the guys who did the job are no good just the settings they use are no good. No doubt The Dr will come along and explain.

Would have thought that the man himself would be closest to Ashford. CLICK HERE for a full list of "Trusted Centres".

I dare not say Lexus had got it wrong. Rather the positions can be improved on...

This is the reason? The front camber dynamics permit the curve to rest very negative. this curve needs to be dialed out static.... Next the castor position tends to be low reducing the turning radii and belaying the Ackerman angle.. The solution is to remove the negative camber, this will incline the KPI/SJI and pivot the toe.... As the toe is corrected the pivotal points of construction shifts the caster forward indirectly moving the angle into UK position.... basically pulling the cars lower parallelogram forward..... All this can be done with as little as 10' camber correction :D

Booking without question.... wim and LOC have shared a very good relationship regarding Geometry recovery and cost.... If you are thinking of coming to me then i advise you join Gold here first... That welcomes a generous discount surpassing the Gold fee in one instant.......... food for thought!

i was looking to join gold, i guess this can be the excuse...

ill have to get my ***** in gear.

again thanks for all the responce.

The immediate benefits are obvious to you...... join and save much money in your venture... or just support the club.... I did and i don't even drive a car :hehe:

    • All-new Lexus RX: luxury expressed in interior design simplicity
      Lavish details and flourishes are not necessarily the best way to express luxury. A “less is more” approach with design simplicity can be a much more effective way to communicate high quality, as witnessed in the interior of the all-new Lexus RX

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
